    Hi,

    I currently have a dual-band (900/1800) Nokia 1100, which I like a lot
    because it's a phone that calls without any unneeded gadgets.

    However, I'll be visiting the US, and I understand that although a
    triband (850/900/1800 or 900/1800/1900) will do, a quad-band is a
    safer bet.

    Is there a Nokia no-fuss quad-band phone? Or do there exist cheap
    850/1900 nokia dualband phones that I could import from the US?

    Thanks in advance,

    Niek Bergboer

    I think the E50 will do what you need but you'll need to check.

    As to cheap I guess that's relative?

    If he is looking for a candy bar style phone he could always look at the
    Nokia 6300 <http://europe.nokia.com/A4254241> or the Nokia 6233
    <http://www.nokia.com.au/nokia/0,8764,85754,00.html>. Both are pretty
    basic but still have more than enough features.

    I have played with both of these phones and the people that I know that
    own them are very happy with them. The advantage of the 6233 is that is
    also supports WCDMA 2100MHz, so will potentially work in more countries.

    Check the areas you intend to visit for the reception/coverage you can get
    and then consider hiring a phone that works best. Not all areas of the USA
    allow you to adequately use just a tri/quad band GSM phone.

    You could try posting sparse details of where you intend to visit if you
    don't get coverage details and see what the "population" then recommend.
